Australian Standard and the Building Code

Australian Standard AS1926.1

The Standard applicable to private swimming and spa pools in NSW is AS1926.1-2012 Swimming pool safety - Safety barriers for swimming pools.

The Standard is copyright-protected, but the Office of Local Government and local councils may allow members of the public to look at (but not print or photocopy and take away) the Standard at their respective offices, libraries and other outlets during normal business hours.

If local councils or others wish to allow public inspection of the Standard in any way other than by personal inspection at offices, branches or outlets, they must first contact SAI Global’s copyright section to ensure that copyright of the Standard will not be breached.

The Office of Local Government and local councils are required to make available a copy of the Building Code of Australia for public inspection free-of-charge.
